Lakshya Institute, a Rashtriya Khel Protsahan Puraskar winner, has partnered with Dream Sports Foundation (DSF), the philanthropic arm of Dream Sports, to support seven promising athletes across five sports in their pursuit of the Olympic dream. They are calling this mission ‘One Dream, One Lakshya’ (ODOL).
The ODOL programme is designed to identify and provide comprehensive support to potential Indian Olympians through coaching, financial aid, training equipment, and national and international tournament exposures. The seven athletes who are the programme beneficiaries will receive intensive training for the Paris 2024 and Los Angeles 2028 Olympics. They represent five sports disciplines, namely shooting (Nupur Patil, 19 years), boxing (Devika Ghorpade, 16; Nupur Sheoran, 22), wrestling (Sunil Kumar, 22), badminton (Tara Shah, 16; Riya Habbu, 17) and table tennis (Sreeja Akula, 22).
